This is the crux of the problem, the explanation for staff. In schools, there is a culture of insecurity as far as I can see. People don't take it seriously. Offices with filing cabinets full of data are left unlocked, laptops are left with MIS systems on screen and unlocked etc... There needs to be a major shift in the way staff think, and I think this is an issue which needs addressing. How to get teachers to listen? :)
Minefield, can of worms, ease of use, slow machines..... it's all getting a bit heavy, when all the teachers want to do is write the end of year reports. I do understand the issues just not sure how to explain it all to my users not to mention implement it all.
